Oscar De La Hoya, 'The Golden Boy', has placed a big bet on the golden boy of golf, Tiger Woods. Woods is taking part in a competitive golf tournament for the first time in 14 months. The golf ace suffered a horrific car crash after which he had to undergo surgery. The crash was so severe that doctors thought of amputating his leg. Against all the odds, the American has begun his journey at the Masters.

Oscar De La Hoya is so confident in Woods' abilities that he is betting on him winning the tournament. He announced the news via Twitter:

"Betting 500k on @TigerWoods to win the @TheMasters"

Take a look at the tweet:

Tiger Woods himself is confident that he will win the tournament despite his long lay-off. Thousands of people arrived at the golf course in Augusta, Georgia, to watch Woods take part in his 24th Masters tournament. In what looked like a scene from a movie, Woods hit par on his first hole and the crowd cheered as he putt the ball into the first hole.
